The Praça da Republica is one of the main squares in Braga, Portugal. It is a garden type square with buildings around it - some very lovely buildings. There are monuments, fountains and churches lining the square. It is nice but nothing special.

Well kept garden in the center of the city. Nice place to sit for a bit and relax. Very long, you don't have to walk it all to grasp it.

Praca da Republica is a great public space. It's large-ish, and the area around is like a long, stretched out park, full of greenery and beautiful colourful flowers. They take care of this area, as we observed a number of workers tending to the plants....More
